Been working on this for a while.
I was involved with the restoration of the real deal.
General Motors 1969 Camaro cut-away show car display.
There are 2 subframes, a 6 cylinder with Powerglide with standard front end and a 350/350 set up with Rally Sport option.
Each subframe was on its own turn table and the body on a 1/4 turn table.
The body would be inline with a subframe to make a complete car. The other subframe would be turned 180 degrees to show from the rear. The body would then lift off the subframe and turn 45 degrees as the tables would slowly rotate into position and the body would sit down on the other subframe making a complete car again. Now the other subframe and details were now visible.
A huge amount of detail was visible on these things.
Because of scale and sanity I have abbreviated some of the details, but did throw in the significant items.
I still have more to add but felt it was good enough to post.

Ok, so here I am outlining one of the many cut away sections. This was all done in black between any orange/white areas.Posted Image


And here we are holding the intake gaskets while Glen sets down the intake as not to chip any of the surfaces.

So, how would you like to pay for that chrome plating bill?
There was no questioning the cost of the plating as nothing short of perfect would be expected. Original items, if ok, were reused. Anything damaged or pitted from age and such were replaced with correct date coded new old stock items.

The assembled 350 engine.
Notice the alternator case being a bit long.
It was hiding a electric motor that would turn the engine at 20rpm. There was also one modified AC plug that has a light bulb in it that would light up the cylinder as it "fired".
All "bearing" surfaces are Teflon machined to match actual bearing clearances. Piston wrist pins were also machined from Teflon stock. It wasn't just a show piece as the cam timing and distributor had to be right just like a actual engine for the effects to work.
